Setting a Map's Scale and Extent

  • The scale and extent of a map can be set (locked down) via the Data Frame tab of the layer's Data Frame Properties
  • For a fixed scale, check the Fixed Scale box and enter the desired map scale
  • For a fixed extent, check the Fixed Extent box and enter the N-S-E-W coordinates for the map's edge
  • Note that zooming to the extent you wish first, will save manually entering the extent coordinates
  • Note that setting a Fixed Scale will disable the Zoom tools
  • Note that setting a Fixed Extent will disable the Pan and Zoom tools
